A next-generation cosmetic filler, Radiesse® is used in the treatment of deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It also can be used for hand rejuvenation. Radiesse® cosmetic filler has small particles suspended in a gel-like solution. These particles are comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that occurs naturally in human bones and teeth.
For the first few months after Radiesse® treatment, it acts as a cosmetic filler, plumping up the skin and diminishing age lines. Then Radiesse particles stimulate natural collagen growth, actually causing new tissue development..
Radiesse® injectable hydrogel delivers immediate, natural-looking volume and stimulates your body to produce new collagen for a youthful appearance that is long-lasting. In many patients, Radiesse® wrinkle filler benefits may last a year or more.
